The Association of Greater Noida Industries (AGNI) has demanded an ESI hospital at Greater Noida. It argued that there was just one hospital at Noida for 4.5 lakh ESI cardholders in the twin cities.
“Delhi with 6.5 lakh cardholders has four ESI hospitals. Being industrial cities the number of card holders are bound to increase,” PP Sharma, general secretary, AGNI, said on Saturday, adding, “After the new hospital starts its operation, there will be one bed for 1,500 cardholders against present ratio of one bed for 3,000.”
“There are just four dispensaries in the twin cities. Six more dispensaries are required in different parts of the twin cities,” Sharma claimed.
